Video Games >

The Shy Kids are three nerdy awkward man-children that meet once a week in a garage full of spiders that may or may not be poisonous to talk about nerdy awkward stuff that may or may not be interesting. Introducing: Doc Wheatley is a videogaming Anglophile with a knowledge of media trivia bordering on autism. Dean Bottino is the hipsterish funkateer on the verge of discovering self-confidence. And, Cory Cooke, an only child, who spent most of his developmental years unsuccessfully teaching himself magic and the bass guitar, actually managed to impregnate a woman once.
